Letter: Berkshires Has Already Benefited From Blackmer's Work
Letters to the Editor,
04:00PM / Saturday, October 07, 2017

To the Editor:

We moved up to Massachusetts from New York a few years ago, looking for a comfortable place to live, work, and be involved in our community. The Berkshires have always been important to us and settling here was a dream come true. As artists, we love the community support afforded the arts and together with a few new friends we started the Adams Arts Advisory Board, hosted the first Berkshire Mountains Faerie Festival, established the Art on the Trail initiative along the Ashuwillticook Trail in Adams.

Getting involved in several other area groups brought us connections in many towns of the NoCo region. We met folks who, like us had raised their children in more urban

Letter: Blackmer Has Always Advocated for Community
Letters to the Editor,
03:54PM / Saturday, October 07, 2017

To the Editor:

I’m writing to express my support for Lisa Blackmer for state representative.

Yesterday, FaceBook shared a memory of my 2011 run for North Adams City Council. The photo reminded of the support I had from Lisa Blackmer when I chose to become involved in community service. It is a challenging job. Lisa supported me because she believes that our communities are better when all citizens are engaged.

Her energy, knowledge, and enthusiasm for our communities are unmatched. Not only has she served the city well for the past 10 years, both here and in Boston, but she has been a staunch supporter of every cause she comes across. She has worked hard on the Board of the Girl

Instead of bickering about parking get a industry in North Adams with higher paying jobs than all the service jobs we have now. Is anyone on the commitee out there looking for any industries to come

Letter: Blackmer Stands Above the Rest
Letters to the Editor,
03:49PM / Saturday, October 07, 2017

To the Editor:

I'm writing to express my support for Lisa Blackmer for state representative.

I met Lisa through volunteer work in the community and have always been impressed by her work ethic. She is everywhere at once and has always believed in contributing to the whole of Northern Berkshire, not just one town or city. Looking at all of the candidates, Lisa stands above the rest in her grace, knowledge, and experience. She and her husband, Bill, have shown their dedication to our community time and time again.

One of Lisa's most impressive qualities is her ability to listen to others and research every issue the community deals with. She takes in all of the sides presented

Letter: Bosley Is a Community Builder
Letters to the Editor,
03:41PM / Saturday, October 07, 2017

To the Editor:

When I vote on Oct. 10 in the Democratic primary for 1st Berkshire District state representative I will be voting for Stephanie Bosley.

Being that Stephanie is my wife, most would assume that this is a foregone conclusion. However, the reasons that she is my wife should matter to each and every voter when they choose to vote on Oct. 10. I knew I would marry Stephanie from our first date and I assure you that is not a line, ask anyone who knows me and you'll find this has been the story since the moment Stephanie left after the date was over. We spent time at a local pub getting to know each other and I quickly realized that every story and every experience she spoke

Letter: Barrett Has the Knowledge, Experience to Serve 1st Berkshire
Letters to the Editor,
03:23PM / Saturday, October 07, 2017

To the Editor:

I am pleased to write this letter in support of John Barrett III for state representative. As a longtime professional in workforce development, I can attest to John's personal knowledge and experience on this issue in Berkshire County.

John and I worked together when he was executive director of BerkshireWorks career center. Much of our work at the career center included training our workforce through on-the-job training programs funded through state and federal initiatives. These programs saved local businesses substantial dollars and put local job seekers back to work. John’s experience makes him the most qualified in this special election as he understands the

Letter: Vote for Passion & Experience, Vote Kevin Towle
Letters to the Editor,
03:16PM / Saturday, October 07, 2017

To the Editor:

When choosing a state representative you want to choose someone who is running for the correct reasons, choose the one who expresses passion about everything they're saying, who speaks to you as a friend and has the ability to connect with each and every one in the community with understanding and compassion, the one who has the experience and the drive to continue the work of their predecessors while bringing in new ideas to grow the district.

I will openly admit that when I first heard that Kevin wanted to run for 1st Berkshire state representative, I had my concerns especially with all of the changes already going on in our lives, I always knew one day that he would

Letter: Blackmer Is the Public Servant We Need
Letters to the Editor,
03:10PM / Saturday, October 07, 2017

To the Editor:

In 2012, I was involved with running the coordinated campaigns of U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, President Barack Obama and the new-to-the-Berkshires U.S. Rep. Richard Neal for Northern Berkshire County. When Congressman Neal showed up at our headquarters on Ashland Street in North Adams, one of the first people to greet him was City Councilor Lisa Blackmer. After sticking her hand out with a quick pleasantry, Lisa skillfully went to work and listed off a number of specific projects that North Adams could use federal help with. I was both impressed and floored by her chutzpah with a sitting member of Congress. That's the kind of gutsy, in the trenches, public servant she

Letter: Blackmer Outworks Other Candidates
Letters to the Editor,
03:00PM / Saturday, October 07, 2017

To the Editor:

Being a state legislator, contrary to popular opinion, is a very demanding position. It takes great stamina and an ability to juggle 100 things at once, all the while maintaining a sincere ear to listen to your constituents, colleagues, experts, and especially those who need your help.

Only one of the candidates for the 1st Berkshire state representative has demonstrated the dogged determination to do mountains of hard work, listen, help others and still engage daily with our community. That person is Lisa Blackmer.

There is something about a woman who has made her own name, put herself through school while raising a family (and continues her education to this day), taken

Striking Nurses Get Support From Other Labor Unions
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
10:52AM / Saturday, October 07, 2017

Liz Morrison said the nurses wouldn't strike if they didn't believe there is an issue. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The striking nurses at Berkshire Medical Center are finding support from other labor unions.   On Friday, an array of other union members joined the picket line, linking arms with the nurses from the local chapter of the Massachusetts Nursing Association, and spread out along the sidewalks surrounding the hospital. The effort was a show of solidarity from others who have gone through the same battle in the past.   "This is what solidarity looks like. It is when not only your own union members are out here but when others recognize why you are here and

Berkshire United Way Highlights Efforts To Help Area Teens

06:33AM / Saturday, October 07, 2017

Pittsfield Schools Superintendent Jason McCandless was the keynote speaker. LEE, Mass. — When Ana Monsalve returned the United States at age 10 after living abroad, she entered school not knowing English.   She leaned on support from her family and the community to learn the language, and then caught up with her education.   Now she is college bound pursuing a career in architecture and environmental science. And she already has a leg up in the field because she spent this past summer getting her hands dirty, working with the Roots Rising program.   "This past summer I had the opportunity to participate in the Roots Rising program offered by the Berkshire

'Battle of the Sexes': We've Come a Long Way, Baby
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires film critic
05:44PM / Friday, October 06, 2017
Watching Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris's "Battle of the Sexes," about the events leading up to the famous gender war/tennis match on Sept. 20, 1973, between woman's champion Billie Jean King and former great Bobby Riggs, I tried to remember what I thought at the time. I like to think I applauded the dispelling of prejudices and welcomed the renaissance it boded for the human race. Surely I didn't opt for the he-man stance, afraid what it might mean to my manhood if a female bested a male in something other than childbirth. Nah, I couldn't have.   It's mindboggling. While the more advanced, higher-educated segments of the world's populace have more
